I have owned my Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro V3205 for 4 years, and it is still going strong. It comes with all standard features (bluetooth/wireless/ 3 USB sockets/ CD drive etc) but is compact enough to carry around. A very good laptop, I would recommend to students.
The good points:
1. With a 12 inch screen, it is small enough to carry around with you but large enough to work on easily. Mine fits neatly into a handbag, which means no need to carry around a bulky laptop case.
2. It is reliable and long-lasting. Mine is 4 years old, but still works very well despite constant use. The battery doesn't last quite as long as it used to, but that is all. I haven't had to have it repaired at any point.
The bad points:
1. This laptop is best for those who have to carry it around a lot (e.g. students). If you won't be moving it much, I would go for one with a bigger screen as 12 inches is a bit on the small side.
2. The battery lasts for 3.5 hours when new, which is good but not brilliant.
fujitsu siemens Products are high quality with good price but company product not export to north america so fujitsu siemens is not famous in north america countries. fujitsu siemens products only export to europe africa and middle east and its market is small. most computer magazin and Famous computer sites are in US and They dont direct access to fujitsu siemens laptop and because of that there are not many review about fujitsu siemens laptops.
Fujitsu siemens amilo pro v3205 has best price/performance ratio in 12 inch laptop class in market. i buy it near 1100USD in Kish Iland in Iran 6 mounth ago. my laptop has intel core2duo t5600 1.8GHZ and 2 GB of DD2 Ram and 120 GB Sata hard drive . I work with vista ultimate SP1 and this laptop have no problem with it and run program very fast. Aero Capabilities are Complete Supported and there is no problem with multi media work in vista.
this laptop has some good feature that dont came with other laptop from different brand like Ambient Light Sensor or SPDIF output and 4 usb port (that is a huge gift in 12 inch laptop). it has some extended button up of the standard keyboard and there is a button for reduce fan noise .
it's weight is only 1.8 kg and easy to carry it's display is good but there is no LED BackLight. battery life is 3.5 hour with light work but if you work with heavy software it reduce near 2 hour.
It's Design is simple and good and it has a magnesium lid . made quality is very high.
If you looking for a different laptop with german quality and a very good price buy amilo 3205 but if you want a laptop from famous brand forget it.
